Ryan's story featured in Sunday's Columbus Dispatch

An article on Ryan was featured on the front page of the sports section in Sunday's Columbus Dispatch (7/19/09). For those of you out of town, I've attached a copy of it here for you.

We're really looking forward to the Golf Outing this Friday. I'll attach some pictures of it next week. Thank you so much for all of your support.

Reminder for the Inaugural Ryan Salmons Foundation Golf Outing

The Inaugural Ryan Salmons Foundation Golf Outing is almost here. Please join us in this great event next Friday, July 24th. Brad has worked with the Blue Jackets Foundation to establish a foundation in Ryan's memory. This golf outing is the first event for the foundation, which will raise money to help ensure families battling pediatric cancer can occasionally enjoy a night out at local sporting events such a Blue Jackets or Clippers game.

The Golf Outing will be Friday, July 24th, at Foxfire Golf Course. It will feature a noon shotgun start with registatration at 11 a.m. The $100 per person ticket includes golf, a cart, dinner, four on-course drink tickets. All proceeds will benefit families of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Cancer Floor (J5).

"Ryan and I constantly spoke about 'The doctors doing the doctor stuff, and I (Brad) would work on the spirit stuff," Brad Salmons said. "Ryan's legacy to the other kids will be the spirit stuff. We could not venture more than a couple hours from Children's hospital. We will not be a Foundation for Disney trips or wishes, but an evening away at home without worry of the financial burden. Clippers, Blue Jackets, OSU sports, etc. If a family enjoys the zoo, we will try to make it happen for the kids."
